FIRST job this morning is to finish the West Highland Way Gifts’ merch and deliver it all to the village shop. I also need to do all the stock control and invoicing.
Next, I hit the studio and start the editing on the Devil’s Left Hand footage from the hall gig…and while checking the finished edits, I realise that there’s still Hangman’s Blues to be done too!
Anyway, I get the rushes for Devil’s Left Hand loaded into the system and get started on that one.
After a lunch break I write a news release for the forthcoming Wanted (Dead or Alive) release and set up all the media streaming and download assets – tagged audio files (.mp3 and .wav), video, promo pix, cover art etc – then start sending it to my media contacts. No mass mailout here, I send to each personally with a message.
Back in the house I make some poolish – a pre-fermented mix a bit like a sour dough starter – for a batch of pizza dough for visitors on Thursday evening.
The poolish has to sit for an hour before going in the fridge so I get out for a walk while the yeast starts to do it’s thing.
Margaret’s got a community trustees’ meeting early evening – while she’s out I prepare dinner then go back to the studio, put out an email teaser for the single release out to my email list and finalise all the video versions of Devil’s Left Hand that have now finished processing.
